Try doing a firmware update on the TV:
Here is our troubleshooting article for screen share:
This may help you and others.
My iPhone 7+, current OS, connected perfectly to my LG 60' until one day it didn't. The error message on the iPhone was something to the effect of 'Can't connect to LG OS' or something like that.
Went through all the usual steps, verified the TV was updated, phone was updated, restarted WiFi, swore a little, blah, blah, blah. Nothing worked and figured there was no reason to ask Apple or LG for ideas since one would likely blame the other and I'd have to live with it either way. That's just how things are in this connected world.
Then a light bulb went off. I knew there was no going backward with the iPhone OS but I could sure reset the LG to factory settings. I did and that fixed it. Whatever update LG did at whatever point didn't play nice with the Apple OS. I then set the LG to not do updates. I'll take my chances on missing a 'really important' one.
An added 'bonus' when it was failing, the phone would still 'see' the TV in the phone's Mirroring selector box and then when I'd tap on it, if the TV was off, it would turn it on. Didn't realize that until one morning when my wife asked why I left the TV on all night. I'd been fiddling with the phone/mirroring while not in the TV room, went to bed and didn't know I'd turned it on. At least the cats enjoyed the all-night entertainment.

Do you own a LG TV, but can’t get Screen Share to work from your Android device or your laptop? Your Wi-Fi network might be the reason!
I brought myself a LG TV with WebOS since it had a lot more features than other TV brands at the time of purchase. One of the most interesting features was Intel WiDi and Miracast support, allowing you to mirror the screen from your laptop or phone onto the big screen. However, for some reason I had issues trying to get this feature to work and every time I had tried to connect, I received a message saying “Unable to connect.”
After a while of trying, I figured out that my wireless network was to blame. I am using only one SSID, which broadcasts on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies and Wi-Fi Direct didn’t seem to like it in this case.
Fortunately, there are multiple solutions to this. You can either use a network cable, switch to a single frequency or even better create a custom guest network for your TV and other IoT devices.
